The Shoot

Located in downtown San Jose, the SJSU campus lives at the heart of Silicon Valley. One of the school’s most alluring aspect is San Jose State University’s beautiful campus. As an SJSU Grad Photographer, I love the fact that I can create a nice image almost anywhere on the campus.

The day couldn’t have been more perfect for Amanda’s photoshoot. Mid 70’s and sunny. We started our session by taking a couple of photos at the very popular Student Union glass wall. Amanda brought with her a couple of friends, her “hype team” as she called them. And boy where they good at pumping her up and creating a fun environment for our grad.

The 7th street plaza was a cant miss location, popular for its beautiful palm background. From there, we made our way to the front of the school, where shots with Tower Hall are a must. The flowers were blossoming, so we sure to grab a few photos in front of them as well. We concluded our session by taking some photos of Amanda popping’ bottles 🍾. I love being an SJSU Grad photographer!

Below are some of our favorite SJSU grad photos with Amanda. Enjoy!
